School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering Seminar, “Design and Modeling of a PneuSMA Soft Robotic Catheter Using Resistance-Based Modeling of Nitinol Springs” Presented by Dr. Emily Allen
Workshop / Seminar
WSU Pullman - Engineering Teaching Research Laboratory (ETRL)

Soft robotic devices show particular promise for medical applications where the ability to perform snake-like manipulations with soft devices could radically improve the safety and effectiveness of endoscopic and intravenous procedures. Where traditional catheter devices for these procedures can only be steered at the tip, there exists a need for more maneuverable devices with a high number of degrees of freedom (DOF) that can be controlled throughout the entire length.
